PPG Website is live!
« on: April 06, 2004, 11:13:57 AM »
A proper site portal is now live at http://www.pocketplane.net . Special thanks to Gospelcat and Kish for carefully combing through the site and finding a bunch of broken links last night.

Well, the color scheme is STILL EXCEEDINGLY TEMPORARY. We're currently having a "that navy blue is too dark!" argument in private, but I will exercise insane overlord powers and impose my will shortly.

Am aware, we'll be going about the tedious business of updating that in the coming days and weeks.

The layout is infinitely better. I am also glad the colours are still temporary. :)

Here's my vote for a new color scheme, but like the design quite a bit!   ;D

The website looks much better now, but the logo on this page is somewhat cropped in the shadows. Perhaps moving it a bit upward would include the whole shadow or moving the shadow closer to the words and thus leave less space to be cropped to the right and below. :)

That's currently part of the logo, but yes, we know, certain things will get finalized after other things.

OMG I'm such a yutz ::sighs:: sorry Jason, I'll have you a pretty mock banner as soon as I get home.  I guess my only questions is what would you like on it (Just Baldur's Gate stuff of lots of bioware stuff) and what font was used for the current banner?

I love it, it looks so much more organized now, though I'm having a hard time with the grey and orange.  ::hides from ugly stares::  I'm not saying it's hideous, just it looks somhow familiar ::shrugs::  Anyway really nice job guys ::thumbs up::

Oh yea, and if you need any more mirror sites let me know and I can toss everything up on one of my servers ::friendly smile::  I have too much space and not enough stuff on it anyway.

It's okay, Kate. I think we're pretty happy with the direction Bons is taking us.

The color scheme is... undescribable. Gray and Orange together.  :-[  Anyways, I'm glad it is only temporary. I prefer blue to black or gray to black (like bioware.com).

JC, are you messing with the stars? I took quite some pride knowing I was one of the few to have 2.. not so special seeing that everybody has 5.

Fighting for equality?  ;D

Stars and post counts should never be equated with importance.  People tend to over-spam forums in the hopes that they will earn that next star or the next rank. 

We are all a bunch of happy, 5-star rated Planewalkers.  :)

At the risk of garnering a response from the Insane Overlord of, “Do you see a poll here?”, I vote for dark text on light background as it is now.  Very clean, easy to read, easy to navigate.  Thumbs up to designer.  No navy blue, please.
Ever wonder what an impulsive bard would do if she feared her boyfriend Anomen were turning back into a vampire?  No?  Well, read my new fanfic, Life During Wartime, and find out anyway.
